Language changes on site - globalization problem


We released our new web site yesterday and on the list of bugs there is a problem regarding the language. The site can all of a sudden change language from one branch to another without changing the url. The language is set by domain via:

<site description="Example Site">
         <add name="" language="sv" />
         <add name="" language="no" />
         <add name="" language="en-GB" />
         <add name="*" />

Is there anything that I've missed out on or is there any known bug regarding this issue?

Hi Peter,

Which version of EPiServer are you running? There is a bug in R2 SP2 that will cause this scenario. Contact EPiServer support to get a hotfix.

That is the version we're running so I will take your advice. Thanks!

Is there an existing hotfix for this bug? I'm beginning to doubt. I've been in contact with two different partners as well as EPiServer and no sign of a hotfix.

Peter: Did you solve this? I'm having the same problem.

Can't say that I did. We got the hotfix which may have made things a bit better but it wasn't until the update to version 6 that the problem disappeared.

That didn't sound promising. :/ Thanks anyway.
I guess the hotfix you got was this one: ?

Oct 04, 2010 16:03

Yes, I thinks so. Didn't help you either?

Oct 04, 2010 16:09

Not a bit. :/

Peter: We got a new hotfix from EPiServer and added it to the GAC and it worked like a charm. :)

Good to hear! And good to know, if I'll ever have the same problem with a version 5 site.
